Chin Injeti Spreads Self-Love With Single, ‘For The Love Of Life’

Multi-Grammy and JUNO Award-winning artist CHIN INJETI‘s new single ‘For The Love Of Life,’ is a rallying cry of self-love and reliance. It wasn’t completed without some of Injeti’s tenured collaborative magic; he called upon fellow Vancouverite Teon Gibbs to feature on the track.

With a burgeoning catalog at 255,000+ streams across Spotify alone, ‘For The Love Of Life’ is Injeti’s first of the year, and follows 2020 offerings of ‘Let Go,’ ‘Serious,’ and ‘Falling’ — the latter of which featured Esthero on accompanying vox and Delhi 2 Dublin’s Tarun Nayer on tabla.

Born in Hyderabad, India and having to survive polio from birth, music therapy treatments helped facilitate his motor skills — ultimately changing his life. His path towards the craft became clearer when Injeti teamed up with then-partner DJ Khalil with whom he made multi-GRAMMY and JUNO Award-winning music with and for the likes of Dr Dre, Eminem, Drake, Pink, Aloe Blacc, The Clipse, Lecrae, K’Naan, and more.

Chin InJeti Gets ‘Serious’ With Brand New Single

Born in India, CHIN INJETI is the middle child to a father who was a classical vocalist and a mother who was a surgical nurse. Surviving polio from birth, he started music therapy to help facilitate his motor skills at the age of eight – and this changed his life.

After many years of touring all over North America with The Fugees, The Roots, Jamiroquoi and A Tribe Called Quest,  Chin learned the importance of an impactful lyric and melody. He then teamed up with then partner DJ Khalil; with whom he made music with and for Dr. Dre, Eminem, Drake, Pink, and many other artists.

Releaed last Friday (31st February), Chin’s new single, ‘Serious’ was inspired by ’80s funk and boogie music with a modern disco twist. Check it out below…

Song of the Day: Can’t Talk – Tiera Beverly

Produced by Jason Mater (Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Eminem) and Brandon Rogers (Alec Benjamin, Troye Sivan, Bea Miller), TIERA BEVERLY‘s leading single ‘Can’t Talk’ oozes  sultry vocals, dramatic drums and soaring smokey harmonies, creating a throwback feel to Beverly’s love of 90’s girl groups. The track is brought to life with live musicians and twinkling keys, emitting a mesmerizing ambiance and showcasing her love for artists such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Aaliyah.

Thematically ‘Can’t Talk’ narrates the journey of youth and realizing that to reach your goals you need to put yourself first. Beverly reveals, “This song was inspired by what I view as the current state that we live in, as far as technology. I do like things about social media, but I do feel like we are in a world so fueled by the need for constant reassurance and instant gratification. I definitely think that a lot of people have such a short attention span and it can cause for insecurity in relationships”.

The Los Angeles-based R&B songstress was born into a family of musicians – her father and grandfather (the famed Frankie Beverly) were both musicians and accomplished artists.

New Music Video: Revvin’ – Ocean Wisdom (ft. Dizzee Rascal)

OCEAN WISDOM releases his album along with the video to ‘Revvin’, featuring one of the UK’s biggest stars Dizzee Rascal.

The record is one of the many golden finds from the album, showing off the rappers warp speed flow and double-time delivery, which is one of his many unique eccentricities. Joined by the Boy In Da Corner, Dizzee Rascal, who described OCEAN WISDOM during their studio session as a “mental lyricist, one of the best I’ve heard period”, brings his own flavour and vibe to the track adding his own quick-time flows and savage bars that leave you in awe of the talent coming from one tune. Following its radio premiere with DJ Target on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show, ‘Revvin’ tipped the BBC website as the most listened to track from his shows throughout the week and was subsequently chosen as the DJ’s Record Of The Week on the station.

As the second visual to drop from the album, the bar is raised by OCEAN WISDOM on his own work as nostalgia, energy and raw venom spin out of the scenes. Filmed at night surrounded by their own crews, the rappers are clearly at ease and in the moment as they drip with effortless swag to deliver a dope video that captures the essence of ‘Revvin’. Both wrap their flows around the beat perfectly, bringing an old skool vibe and blowing up the beat for one of the biggest tracks on the album.

Released on the 23rd February, ‘Wizville’ is the pinnacle of OCEAN WISDOM’s work so far. His unswayable integrity and confidence towards his music has awarded him with the kudos that it takes to confirm artists such as Dizzee Rascal, Method Man, P Money, Rodney P, Roots Manuva & Chester P and productions from Rude Kid, Pete Cannon, Mystry and more, across the 20 impressive records that make up this important offering. Whilst unique blends of genre-merging flows weave in to thought-provoking lyricism to create a tapestry of moods, emotions and sonic nirvana.

Having built an impressive following in his own unique way, away from the tried and tested routes of fellow rappers, the raw poetic and unfiltered rapper signed to High Focus Records in 2014, (the label that has spearheaded the UK hop-hop movement for the last eight years, including ‘Rag’n’Bone Man’s’ first projects that set him firmly on course for superstardom), and regularly tips a million streams on tracks uploaded to his Spotify account as well as his YouTube hits netting over 15 million views.

Through his versatility and unparalleled lyrical creativity, stage presence and flow, OCEAN WISDOM delivers major impressions in each aspect of his artistry, from performing to main-stage crowds of over 10,000 people to dethroning Eminem as the ‘fastest rapper’, after managing to fit an impressive 4.45 words per second into his track ‘Walkin’ compared to Eminem’s 4.31 words per second in ‘Rap God’, as documented by UniLad. This article would go on to become viral, drawing praise for Wizzy as well as being commented on by some of the industry’s forerunners such as The Game, D12 and Akon.
